Prefabricated Cable Assembly Kits
CableRail by Feeney prefabricated cable assembly kits are standardized and contain all of the components,
fittings, and hardware necessary for assembly and installation. Kits are available in a variety of cable diameters and
The cable used in prefabricated cable assembly kits is 1x19 construction (one strand of 19 wires) type 316
stainless steel strand for strength, durability, and weather protection . It’s smooth to the touch, visually attractive,
and highly resistant to abrasion. Assemblies in 1/8" cable are designed to replaced commonly used metal or wood railing
Each cable assembly comes with a threaded terminal fitting on one end and a field installed
automatic-locking Quick-Connect® fitting for the other end.
The threaded terminal end comes already factory attached (swaged) to one end the cable. It’s then fastened to an end
post using a flat washer and a nut, and the line is tensioned by spinning and torquing the nut. The threaded terminal
is available 7-˝ inches long for wood posts.
The automatic-locking Quick-Connect® fitting attaches to the cable by hand in the field without
special tools. One-way jaws allow the cable to easily slide through in one direction but automatically grab and lock-on
when the cable is released. The cable is slipped through the fitting and pulled taut; any excess is then trimmed off.
Both fittings are then capped and finished with colored or stainless steel end caps.
||End Caps(stainless or
colored) are a decorative option for covering and
finishing the threaded terminal and automatic locking connector fittings.
